I've been working out with John for over 3 years, and he has transformed my body. He helped me lose about 13 pounds before my wedding. He's more than just a personal trainer - he's a life and health coach as well. I know if I have any questions about health or what I should be eating, I can always send him a note, and he'll respond. Every workout we do is always different. He keeps things interesting, and I always leave feeling good/sore. John is the best!

Sean is an amazing healer, life coach, therapist, and body talk expert. He was able to bring peace to some old emotional wounds that I hadn’t thought about or even realized were still there. I went to him because I felt “stuck” and was searching for advice on my life purpose. After just two months of sessions, I already felt much healing and therefore more joy than ever in my daily life and am also able to express myself better and see more clearly changes to make to encourage my happiness and growth so that I may pursue my dreams being more in the flow and in the spirit of love.

My Experience working with Amanda on bettering and enhancing my path to vitality was absolutely incredible. She had amazing attention to detail and had me look into aspects of my life that I hadn’t considered to be something that would affect me. She is a brilliant coach and really motivated and inspired me. She helped me to see my best life and the possibilities and potential of myself. The steps and guidance she provided me with have given me tools that I can use throughout my daily life through it’s unpredictable and changing ways. I am always prepared to handle situations that I before would have stressed over or avoided due to anxiety. She also helped me with my gut health which was resulting in my skin having reactions that I just couldn’t get rid of. Everything she does is for you and she’s genuinely cares and wants to help you. Her coaching has changed my life and I highly recommend her. She is an absolute goddess and wonderful human being.

I spoke with Velina on Skype about the challenges I'm dealing with in my life and she was really helpful. I highly recommend her to anyone having difficulties or needing a good coach in their life. She seems to know a lot and has a lot of experience helping people with all kinds of issues. For me, I really felt like she cared deeply for me and understood me like a close friend and yet is very professional. She is warm and kind. I'm so glad I found her. She helped me so much.

I've greatly enjoyed working with Josh over the last year and I've made good progress thanks to his coaching. Both my technique and my conditioning have improved greatly. Josh is professional, he has extensive knowledge and practical experience, and he's a good motivator. Most importantly, he's thoughtful in his approach. He's able to notice small things that make a big difference. For example, he showed me a simple weight drill I had never seen that helped me improve my form and endurance very quickly. For me, this is what a good coach and trainer is all about about. Overall, it's been a great experience working with Josh.

Let me begin by stating that working with Arya has been a phenomenal experience. I originally discovered him through Yelp one night when I was looking for nearby counselors. He's listed down as a life coach and counselor, but what really caught my eye was his 5.0/5.0 rating and number of reviews (40+ at the time). It's very uncommon for someone to have such a perfect rating alongside a large quantity of reviews. I thought something weird was going on so I decided to send in an application for an intake appointment. To be honest I had low expectations of our meeting. I've met with counselors in the past and they hadn't been super helpful to me. Not to discount their abilities, it just more or less felt they were reading off of a script of sorts or working with me from an emotional distance. Of course there must always be some professionalism in play, I don't expect them to suddenly become my best bud after a session. I just want some recognition that I'm a struggling human being on the same level they are versus a patient to dissect underneath a microscope. So color me surprised when Arya did not act like my past counselors! It genuinely feels like Arya will get in the dirty and grimy pits of your life and sit there alongside with you, yet still providing a personally-catered path to somewhere a little cleaner (more appropriate to label it as possessing more vitality, I don't know my audience so I am avoiding usage of that potentially confusing word). You're never forced to do something uncomfortable, but if you're willing to be scared of trying something new then he'll help you ease into it. He's also a pretty smart dude. He doesn't flaunt it whatsoever, it more so comes off from how knowledgeable and skilled he is in several varied areas. If you're an individual that thinks in a certain way and have trouble adapting your perspective then Arya is great for speaking in terms you will understand. There's no sense of condescension on his part, but rather he completely understands that we all operate in our own unique way. It's like if you're trying to express a certain idea in English to a guy that only speaks Spanish. Arya primarily speaks English but he's also a successful polyglot. I didn't know how much of a welcome blessing it was to finally have someone understand the place I operate from until I met him. This definitely accelerates the process of getting unstuck in certain old habits since he can recognize them and notify me of what's going in without too much confusion flying around. I haven't worked with him extensively on making myself a more desirable worker or starting up businesses so I can't speak from that standpoint. I have worked for several months now on learning how to enjoy life and myself on a deeper level. I had no clue I would be here the first time I met him. I urge you to try out an intake appointment with him. His online presence is decent but it doesn't even hold a candle to his physical presence. It may change your life in a similar way to how it's changing mine.

Working with Lucy Curran on my Vet Tech. resume and cover letter was an amazing experience. Previous to working with Lucy I thought I had a good resume and cover letter. Lucy’s changes to my resume and cover letter made them both look and sound amazing. Her knowledge of knowing how to convey a positive message to an employer made my resume and cover letter really stand out. My new resume is now tailored to fit my personality and skills. I am now proud to present my flawless resume and cover letter to any prospective employer. I am so happy with the help provided by Lucy that I would recommend her to anyone who needs to just start a new resume and cover letter, or to someone who thinks that their resume and cover letter may be good enough.

I highly recommend Dr Beth Milwid as a career coach. An experienced senior finance executive in the midst of a career transition, I approached Beth after being referred to her by well regarded leadership coaches in the Bay Area. I have appreciated Beth’s knowledge and experience not only of the job-search process, but also with the broader “career coaching” space. Beth provides an impactful blend of strategy and tactics. She applies real world experience and a talent for listening to guide a process that is specific to one’s goals while providing context from best-in-class resources. Beth provides exercises, articles, and online resources to help guide the process from self-assessment to executing networking and search strategies. She is quick to jump into the detail to support opportunities as they arise - rapidly turning around resume, cover-letter, and other communication edits. If you are in the midst of a job search or interested in more fundamental career coaching, I urge you to contact Beth to see what she can do for you.

Nicole played a big role in my career development. My issues have been trying to focus on what I want to do and how to do it, and working with Nicole on those issues put me on the right path for success. What I love about Nicole is that she forces you to see the big picture, ask yourself the hard (but necessary) questions, and then identify the steps to reach your goals. I look forward to using Nicole again when I need to navigate life and career changes, which I anticipate will reduce my fear of making those changes, knowing I have her in my back pocket.

I've been working with Serenity in personal training sessions for the last 6 months. She is a FANTASTIC personal trainer. She has a strong passion for coaching and developing her trainees and is extremely professional. Her passion is coupled with natural talents of empathy and individualized perception of others as well as a competitive edge. When I first met Serenity, she took the time to fully understand my goals and desires for training together. She invested in learning about me, my motivations as well as the roadblocks that I had been encountering in meeting my fitness goals. As we’ve continued to work together, she has continuously worked to customize my workouts to push me, constantly keeping my workouts just within reach while also a solid stretch for improvement. Our time together has truly become the highlights of my week. I can’t recommend Serenity enough to others!

I have been working with Laura for about a year as a coaching client. Laura uses a lot of novel approaches as a coach and sessions are always fresh and interesting. I've been going through a lot personally over the last year and have found Laura to be an amazing guide during a really big transition. Her insights have translated into new actions for me, like learning to keep better boundaries for myself and I'm forever grateful. ~Danielle

I felt at ease with Judy from the moment I met her. She always has a smile on her face and really takes the time to get to know you as she works with you. I was really struggling with some personal problems when I started working with Judy and I am truly a different person now a year later. It can often be scary to seek help or go talk to someone, but Judy made the experience a pleasant one and I highly recommend her if you're looking for a life coach. No matter where you're at in life, we are constantly growing and it was very helpful for me.

      Wendy played a major role in how I was able to realign my life to be more purposeful and gain control of my future. Before I started my sessions with Wendy, I worked at a decent job with above average pay but extremely low job satisfaction in an industry I could care less about and a role I strongly disliked. I am sure this describes most of us! I knew I wasn't truly happy, and Wendy helped me take inventory of my life. She challenged me to think deeper about what kind of life I wanted going forward. With Wendy's help, great patience, and her asking me all the right questions, and through different assessments, I realized it was time (and felt ready) to switch careers, back to what I've always wanted to do. Once we figured that part out, she helped me with resume review, cover letter review, and interviewing techniques through mock interviews. Now I can say I am finally doing what I studied in college, which is what I've wanted all along! If you are looking for a coach or feel that something is off in your life then I would suggest reaching out to Wendy and starting the conversation to create meaningful change in your life.

        Q & A

        Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

        What is a career coach?

        If you’re interested in furthering your career and want expert help, a career coach is a smart solution. A career coach is a professional you hire to guide you during a job search or a career transition, or to help you improve and advance in your current position. A career coach analyzes your work situation and learns what your professional goals are. They then create a strategy to help you achieve your targets. Throughout the process they should provide objective feedback and guide you in approaching the process strategically. Here are some of the tools and tasks a career coach may assist you with:

        • Helping you build a strong resume that reflects your work history, potential, and skills
        • Coaching for interviews and strategies for solid answers built around your resume and the target job
        • Defining your career goals
        • Creating a plan for job searching
        • Improving networking strategies and skills
        • Developing strategies for negotiating raises or promotions
        • Assessing why you’re not getting where you want to go
        • Identifying new positions or career opportunities that fit your skills

        Why is career counseling important?

        Career counseling can help you discover your career path, help you overcome challenges preventing you from finding happiness in your job, or help you learn more about career opportunities that are available to you. Career counselors are typically counselors who specialize in helping guide people into their best career choices. As professionals, they have typically completed a master’s degree in counseling with a focus on career counseling and bring a nuanced understanding of the emotional blocks that prevent someone from doing what they love or getting ahead in their current position. Here are some of the ways that career counseling can help:

        • Identify your skills and talents and how they correlate to different career paths
        • Educate you about the educational requirements for launching in various careers and what earnings can look like
        • Help you understand the kind of environment you want to work in, and which careers are best suited for that
        • See opportunities to transfer your existing skill set to other career areas
        • Help you identify causes of tension or unhappiness in your current career and how to overcome those difficulties
        • Help you create a game plan for moving forward
        • Provide a safe space for you to understand your feelings about career choices you’re making

        How much does it cost to hire a career coach?

        A career coach provides one-on-one sessions to help you reach your career goals or overcome any challenges you’re having in your career path. The cost to have career coaching can vary based on factors such as the number of sessions you purchase at one time and the experience and rates of your counselor. Career counselors are typically professionals who have earned at least a master’s degree in their field. Based on their academic background, supplemental certifications they have received, and any postdoctoral work they have done, their rates may vary. Typically career counselors offer reduced rates when you sign on for their services on an ongoing basis. A typical price range for career counseling services (nationally) could be $75-$150 per session. Remember to always ask if the career counselor offers a complimentary introductory session. You want to make sure the relationship will be the right personality and counseling style fit to help launch your confidence and upcoming career changes.

        How much does it cost to hire a career coach?

        When it’s time to take your career to the next level, it’s time to hire a career coach. The cost to have a career coach help you with your professional journey will vary based on how many sessions you require, the level of coaching you desire, and the rates of the coach as determined by their experience, expertise, education and training. On average, career coaching sessions can range from 60 to 120 minutes, depending on the professional and what your needs are. Career coaches in smaller towns and areas with a lower cost of living will also typically have lower rates than those residing in large metro areas like New York, although most do offer remote coaching. Many coaches also offer a free introductory consultation, which gives you the opportunity to determine if their personality and coaching style are the right fit. It’s helpful to ask the coach about their relevant experience and get references from former clients. Depending on the professional, session rates could range anywhere from under $60 to well over $250 per session. Package discounts are a good way to commit to the relationship as well as get savings on services.

        What is a career counselor?

        If you’re feeling lost in your career path, overwhelmed, in need of a job but confused as where to start, or ready for change but uncertain what you want, a career counselor is a good choice for you. A career counselor is typically a licensed professional who has earned a master’s degree in counseling — likely with an emphasis on career counseling. Each state has different licensing requirements for career counselors, so be sure to research before reaching out to a pro.

        Due to their academic backgrounds, career counselors often have a more holistic and in-depth approach than a career coach. Career coaches are not regulated by states and also tend to be more business-focused — a good fit for those who know what they want but need help achieving it. On the other hand, a career counselor provides guidance and clarity around some of the more emotional aspects that job hunting and career movement entail. Career counselors meet with you in a series of one-on-one sessions. They assess your personality and learn what drives you. They get a detailed understanding of your work history and your hopes, and often work to help you discover any internal blocks preventing you from going where you want to go. Hiring a career counselor is appropriate at any time in your career, from recent graduate to executive-level management.

        Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
